Academic Departments, Divisions, and Centers

Academic Departments


Research Centers

The School has established several centers to advance research in areas of importance to public health. These efforts tend to be multidisciplinary in their approach, bringing together faculty members from several Harvard Chan departments and in some cases from several faculties at Harvard University. Faculty affiliated with the centers offer courses in their field of interest through the School’s academic departments and often provide opportunities for student involvement in research.

Multidisciplinary Initiatives

These initiatives link centers, programs, departments and  researchers to foster collaboration and coordination of research, education, and community engagement activities:

International Research
